How and when to check that a builder has liability insurance?

Should I check that a builder has liability insurance before hiring them - even for a small job? How do I check the insurance policy? Call the insurance company? Thank you!

Not many customers will ask if you have any, they have the right to know for reassurance. This should be made clear before a quote has been accepted

All people that work in your home should have insurance to a least 1million , you never know when an accident may happen . The trades person should tell you that they are insured and be able to send you a link showing the renewal date and company insured with.

If the company is insured then a copy of the certificate could be made available. In most cases small jobs are not as bad for insurance.
